Holy Grounds

Coffee, Gifts, and Books

Read our 5 star Yelp review!

“Finally, I found out about Holy Grounds on Yelp. It’s a coffee shop specializing in fair trade, locally sourced drinks and food with an eye on gluten-free and vegan options. And it’s inside a church. It was the strangest, delightfully funky coffee experience I’ve ever had. Tim and I both got Vietnamese iced coffee, which was excellent, while we perused the eclectic cafe offerings. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the neighborhood.” – Kelly the Culanarian blog

Holy Grounds is located at 301 East 8th St. You can park in our surface lot in front of the St. David’s main doors.  View Our Menu
